Zebras In America

Zebras In America

“Dude, you can get past a dog. Nobody f's with a lion.” - Grandma's Boy “You notice things if you pay attention.” - In The Mood For Love Marcus Pinn likes movies. Scott Thorough likes movies. Marcus writes about movies (Pinnland Empire, The Pink Smoke), and Scott sometimes scores movies (Newlyweeds, Manos Sucias). They both have a background in hyper underground rap music, and enjoy sandwiches. Through a deep love of rap music, wrestling, and dissecting low and high brow cinema, Marcus and Scott developed an interesting kinship. After a bar conversation about movies where a stranger interrupted to tell them how much they enjoyed listening, they decided, “hey let's see if other people want to listen to our zany thoughts about film”. “Zebras In America” is a stream of consciousness rap on film and anywhere it may take a conversation. "Zebras In America Opening Theme" music by Scott, scratches by Marcus. Logo created by DJ SNAFU read less

Episode 157 - Charles Burnett Returns
We’re honored to call legendary filmmaker Charles Burnett a RETURNING guest. On the latest episode of Zebras we delve in to his seldom discussed late 90’s television period (NightJohn & Selma Lord Selma specifically), which also happens to coincide with black history month (this episode also aligns with the 25th anniversary of the release of NightJohn). But Black history month or not, this is a timeless episode with plenty of replay value well beyond February. Listen as we discuss everything from the importance of education & the distribution of information to the unsung careers of everyone from Bill Cobb to Clifton Powell. Did you know Charles Burnett recently spoke with one of the most critically acclaimed active filmmakers working right now? Listen to find out who.

Episode 155 - Shaka King
Director Shaka King returns to Zebras to talk about his highly anticipated sophomore feature; Judas and the Black Messiah (if you’ve been paying attention to any recent entertainment news then you know it’s one of the most talked about films of the last few months). Photo by Saskia Kahn (@OhSaskia) At the time of this episode’s airing, Judas and the Black Messiah will be on HBOmax, and select theaters (be safe people). Listen as we delve in to topics concerning the nuance of pulling off regional accents to the lasting impact that Fred Hampton made in such a short period of time. Shaka is a not only a friend of the show but also a friend of ours in real life (if you aren’t familiar with his pre-Judas filmography we highly suggest you get familiar, and there are some links provided to some of them included here). In true Zebras fashion we also talk about everything from current rap music favs & and Scott’s film score work to memories of the last time we were all together in one place prior to Covid. Enjoy...
